2013 Scion tC Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Scion? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
